A family trip always goes beyond the traditional definition of trip. Each NUBA design implies a personalized assistance, care for details and plenty of imagination and creativity, resulting in unique, unrepeatable stories that will live in memory forever.
For this winter, NUBA suggests the whole family six destinations where to enjoy varied activities, the most exclusive accommodation and guided tours by professional experts.
Southern summer in New Zeland
Landscapes taken from tales and science fiction stories have nothing on New Zealand landscapes. Fluorescent blue lakes, whistling geysers, fast-flowing streams, green hills, volcanoes and glaciers take travellers into an unreal world, where magical Maori rites and adventures build a legendary country.
The northern island treasures unforgettable spots like Auckland, also known as ‘The city of the seas’, where every year the most important regattas take place and Rotorua, the enchanting land of geysers. Towards the south, there are the Alpine landscapes of Queenstown, the huge cetacean groups in Karaikura, rocky cliffs everywhere, the beautiful British-style city of Christchurch and the wine-growing region of Marlborough Sounds.
- Helicopter flight over the North Island, with amazing views of Mt Tarawera, Rotorua geothermal park and the active volcano of White Island.

The name Philippines defines a still undiscovered country formed by almost seven thousand islands full of natural treasures. It is seen as a piece of heaven gifted by the smiles of its inhabitants.
Chocolate hills, rice terraces, heavenly beaches with the most spectacular seabed of the world, historical cities, legendary tribes and majestic volcanoes surrounded by rainforest.
